  1. Hi, I have a new pattern inspired by a real life pet dog, Dachshund Amigurumi This makes a nice little gift that can be finished in a few hours. Samples shown are 3 inches tall.
  2. Hi, this could be a last-minute addition to your halloween attire: Just got stitched-up choker
  3. Hi, here's another flower design that I made up. This flower can be attached to a button on your clothes or accessories. The center hole is oval-shaped so the flower doesn't easily slip-off. http://mycrochetstuff.blogspot.com/2011/08/crochet-flower-accent-free-pattern.html Thanks for looking
  4. Summer Crochet Band design by Mimi Alelis (this pattern is also posted on my Facebook page) This band can be used as a sporty or casual bracelet or hair accessory. This can also be used for a cell phone strap, mini bag strap, dog collar, etc. Embroidery floss normally used in cross-stitch projects was used here because it is easily available, it has a nice sheen and comes in more attractive colors. Cotton threads will work nicely too.

    Hi Fe, that would make a nice gift! I like the colors. What pattern are you using?
  8. Congrats on those who got published I have just received my contributor's copy and I'm thrilled! The calendar has greatly improved and I love it! Now the pages are thicker - much easier to handle. So many lovely patterns at a very economical price. My designs: Flower Tawashi - April 19 Happy Handy Tawashi - March 10
  9. Congrats, you did a superb job on the design and workmanship!
  10. My niece requested me to make these for her daughter's christening last April 25, 2009. I was supposed to make 40, but finished only 35...even doing the last few pieces while the celebration was going on I made some into fridgies, and some into keychains. I used my free pattern available here. I didn't make any of it with a stand for display, since I didn't have time to stiffen it with glue. Step-by-step photos are also available here in my blog. Thanks for looking!
  11. Hi! Its been a while since I posted here, but I never stopped crocheting I'm always on the lookout for cute little projects. This one would make a nice quick gift to a child or teen - even an adult who loves teddies I found the pattern on Crochet Pattern Central.
  12. What a cool project! Needs so much patience to make one... thanks so much for sharing your pattern
